You know you’re going to need a dumpster. Your project is going to generate more than one truck load of debris. The question is, what size dumpster is best for your project? You may be staring at your project site, scratching your head and asking yourself, “How do I know what size dumpster I need?” Figuring this out is actually easier than you think!

Forget the Measurements

How Do I Know What Size Dumpster I NeedWell…not entirely. You are going to have to tell us what size rental dumpster you want based on the measurements. But for figuring that out, you don’t need to understand cubic yards or how that translates into waste capacity. Instead, think about it in terms of truck loads, based on the bed of an average pickup truck.

A 10-yard dumpster is the equivalent of about three truck loads. This size is usually perfect for a garage, basement, and attic clean outs. If these areas are relatively clean, or simply short on space, our 6-yard dumpster holds about two truckloads and could be ideal for you.

For slightly bigger projects, our 15-yard dumpsters hold about five and a half truck loads. This is often the ideal size for homeowners doing DIY projects.

Twenty-yard dumpsters are much bigger and therefore more versatile. They hold about six truck loads worth of debris and are perfect for deck or flooring removals, large landscaping jobs or roofing jobs. They also work well for interior remodeling of bedrooms and other smaller areas.

When you think about dumpster size in terms of truck loads, rather than cubic yards, you get a much better feel for what size dumpster you need. In addition, you can see just how many trips to and from the transfer station one of our dumpster rentals save you.
